About Byzantine Chains

The Byzantine chain is a common gold or silver link chain design that incorporates a rope-like texture and intriguing textural design. The chains are supple and flexible, draping gracefully about the neck. The chain is named after its place of origin and design; the Byzantine Empire. The Byzantine chain is a 4 in 1 chain meaning that each link passes through four others. It is a variation on the box chain where the direction of links is alternated. A good aspect ratio (AR) for this design is 3.5 to 4.0 (aspect ratio is determined by taking the inner diameter of the size of the jump ring and dividing it by the diameter of the wire used to make the jump ring). The pattern has also been called 'Etruscan', 'birdcage', 'fool's dilemma', 'idiot's trap', 'idiot's delight', and 'bird's nest'.
